I met up with my “Coffee and Classics” book club this morning, where we went out to Starbuck’s and talked about The Pilgrim’s Progress. Suzie had gone to see A.I. the night before, and so we talked about some of the issues that the movie raises. Me, I’m glad that the movie is raising those issues. I’m glad the Spielburg is making films that people want to go see, and from […]

If you haven’t already, check out Saturday’s big entry, where I relate the tale of my adventures at Dulles Airport. There are pretty pictures to entertain you, too. Time for a new poll, this one about the latest findings in the Microsoft trial. Here are the results from the last poll: Now that movie studios are discussing digital broadcasts of movies (and seem to be much more mature about it than […]

Ahhh, bliss. I got confirmation late last night that my orders of Spring and Chaos on DVD, Project A-Ko: Uncvil Wars (a.k.a. Project A-Ko Vs.) on DVD, a Project A-Ko cel, two Mighty Space Miners cels, and a Gundam X cel all shipped yesterday. The DVDs should come in soon, while the cels are traveling from Japan and may take a little while to get here. Almost on a whim, I caught The Screen […]

I met up with some friends last night to go over the character-creationprocess for a game of Nobilis we’re going to be playing. I’ve never done any physical roleplaying before, and as a result I’m both nervous and excited at the prospect of pretending to be a balding 40-year-oldwith five other twentysomething white guys. I still can’t get Tramp on the LAN, despite some fiddling this morning. My e-mails are piling up, and I need to get back […]

I still haven’t written anything for the weekend, have I? Well, I have a good excuse: work’s been extremely busy, and I spent tonight at a friend’s house, going over basic character generation for a game of Nobilis we’re going to be playing. I just got home at 11:00. And then I tried to get Tramp on my LAN, to no success. Windows refuses to recognize the Ethernet card properly. Fortunately, I have three of them handy, so I can just […]

Whew, this afternoon I found out that there’s a Yoshitoshi ABe manga available from Fanboy Entertainment; evidently that is separate from his artbook essence. I just ordered the manga from Right Stuf, along with an $8 tape of My Neighbor Totoro (dubbed) and the two Macross Plus soundtrack CDs. I see that Ray Bradbury is working on film adaptations of not only Farenheit 451, but also The Illustrated […]

Spent most of the day out. The service at The Falls Church was excellent as always, and then I, my parents, and my grandmother all had lunch at The Four Provinces, an Irish restaurant across the street. The buffet was excellent; I had a wonderful meringue topped with chocolate sauce for dessert.

Well, that didn’t go at all as planned. I left work at 5:30 p.m. amid the well-wishes of my officemates, and started driving towards Dulles Airport. A thundestorm was beginning to gather — both literally and figuratively. The phone in my car rang. I jammed the “Snd” button to connect the call. “Hi,” my Mom said. “Saalon just called. He said he’s been checking on the internet, and your flight has been cancelled.” I pulled the truck onto a gravel […]

I’m heading up to Saalon‘s for the weekend, which is always enjoyable. This will be a special experience, though, for two reasons: One, I’ll be seeing his home in Boston for the first time, and two, I’ll get to meet his lovely girlfriend Erin for the first time. This will be our first physical meeting, at least; I’ve known her for years digitally, first on IRC, and now through ICQ. Time […]

Ahhhhhhh. There’s nothing quite like that warm, contented feeling of waking up before your alarm clock goes off. Sleep and I have been enemies for a long time. I don’t like sleep; I feel like it robs me of productive hours when I could be getting things done. Some of these negative feelings come as a result of my unfortunate tendency to overload myself with projects to do, but the rest is […]
